A Momentous Day

Tuesday, March 6, 2012, 07:00 EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

To most people, today is just another day. But the more enlightened among us know it as the birthday of some of history’s most important and accomplished people:

  • 1475 — Michelangelo Buonarroti Simoni, painter, sculptor, and architect
  • 1619 — Cyrano de Bergerac, playwright
  • 1806 — Elizabeth Barrett Browning, poet
  • 1900 — Lefty Grove, Hall of Fame pitcherr
  • 1906 — Lou Costello, comedian
  • 1926 — Alan Greenspan, economist
  • 1937 — Valentina Tereshkova, first woman in space
  • 1944 — Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, operatic soprano
  • 1946 — David Gilmour, rock guitarist

More significant than all of them, however, is the Love of My Life. Happy birthday to him.
